I made a few concessions when I got my '02. It was an older body style so it was more affordable, the only thing I could find at the time was an auto, and because it was an older body style, I settled for the rear suicide doors. I got it at 48000 and it just turned 83600, and I've been toying with the idea of replacing it with a 3rd gen truck, this time a six speed. My thought is to get the "ten year truck", meaning the one that I'll have for the next several years, so it has to meet all of my criteria this time. I'm pretty much limited to '03's - '05's, and being unfamiliar with them, I'm wondering if any of those three years is a must avoid. One specific question is about the '03. Does the CP3 from that year have the same rep as a VP, since it was brand new at the time and hadn't had the bugs worked out? Comments are appreciated.
